DAS Law legal adviser Adam Pincott has been shortlisted for The Bristol Law Society’s ‘Student of the Year’ award.
Part of DAS Law’s Legal Advice team and based in Bristol, Adam undertook the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) on a part-time basis from 2016-2018 at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
Adam completed the BPTC with a grade of ‘Outstanding’ – the highest available – and was subsequently called to the Bar of England and Wales by the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple in July, while also receiving a BPTC Performance Prize from the Inn.
He received the nomination from Victoria Latimer, a barrister and UWE’s Senior Lecturer on the BPTC, who described him as: “…an ‘outstanding’ BPTC student whose commitment to the Bristol student legal community has been exceptional.
“His many contributions include developing and organising a prestigious student competition, and training undergraduate law students. Many law students have benefitted from Adam’s tireless hard work”.
Adam also achieved the highest mark across full-time and part-time cohorts for the criminal law option, and was awarded the ‘Tutor’s Prize’ for his professionalism, academic achievements and exceptional commitment to extra-curricular activities at the university.
Adam said: “I’m obviously delighted to have been nominated by my university for this very prestigious prize. To be shortlisted as one of the top four students by Bristol Law Society from the very high number of nominees really is a very proud moment for me.”
The winner will be announced at an awards dinner on Thursday 11 October 2018 at the Bristol City Marriot Hotel.
